A Joyous Day


The wedding was a joyous day, a day of certain love
They joined their hands in tender bliss, a gift from God above
The beauty from within their hearts, was visible and true
The way they spoke, the way they looked, it seemed that they just knew

They shared that moment peacefully, tearful though they were
Together just the two of them, their words seemed so sincere
Exchanging love and kindness, their vows were cast in stone
They knew that from that day, they would never walk alone

Their friendship grew to love, a love so strong and real
That love will keep them safe, the bad times it will heal
They'll grow together faithfully, remembering what they said
The day they came together, that windy day they wed

We all must learn the lesson, we learned upon that day
That two hearts can be joined, as one to guide the way
We need to open up, our hearts to someone dear
As those two people did that day, the message was so clear

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
